Large Lipoma Removed from Left Hip - Greenville, SC

- 1 Jan 2013
Was well worth the surgery to remove this lipoma which was painful while sleeping on side and causing pressure on spine causing a lot of low back pain. Surgery was on December 10, 2012. Hospital stay overnight to control pain. Relatively speaking the surgery wasn't the cause of pain afterwards but other health issues. I have 2 JP drains that are still there 3 weeks post op. When they removed such a large lipoma there is the space that it once occupied where tissue needs to grow, if it filled up with just blood I would have a sloshy mess and need another surgery just to remove the fluid. I would rather keep the drains in until they are putting out less than an ounce in a 24 hour period. My surgeon is awesome and I have complete faith in him and his staff.
